Thomas is there when ever he can, and they take him home almost every day.
And bring him back to the hospital in the evening..
But they have to watch over him every minute, and my MIL is so tired, sad and helpless...
My FIL is only 65 years old. He was so full of LIFE, always with a smile on his face..
It's so hard to belive this is hapening!
There is not much left of my FIL. He needs a miracle and he needs it NOW!
So please keep him in your prayers... ♥ Thank you
Your FIL is in my thoughts and prayers, Keep strong xxx

Good morning everyone!

We're short-staffed for a while at work. I will be in and out of here a lot more than I would like. With that said, I have some Christmas to share with you all. The Mont Tremblant village was kind enough to provide me with beauty and excitement on Saturday night. Although much, if not all, the store decorations have been removed, the lights still shine brightly. Of course, the fluttering snow and -20c temperatures certainly added to the scene's beauty as well.

Enjoy!

That is all. I hope you enjoyed. I apologize for not taking more. We were in quite a rush to get a cab... and we may have had a few drinks in us already, too.
